Docker launches Build Cloud

Docker has announced a new product, Build Cloud, that it says “directly addresses the pain point of how much time engineering teams spend waiting on builds to complete by accelerating Docker image builds up to 39 times by offloading workloads to the cloud, regardless of whether developers build locally or through continuous integration (CI).”

In a release, the company said, “instead of forcing developers to adapt to a ‘cloud-only’ or ‘local-only’ environment, Docker embraces a hybrid approach. This allows developers to enjoy the familiarity and comfort of local development tools for tasks like code editing and debugging while seamlessly scaling to cloud resources when needed for resource-intensive workloads, collaboration, or deployments.

“Docker Build Cloud requires zero change in the developer’s existing workflow on the local laptop, in their tooling, and in their Dockerfiles – benefits that developers receive with zero switching costs.”

Existing subscribers receive Docker Build Cloud minutes based on their subscription tier – Docker Personal, Pro, Team and Business. Subscribers can purchase Docker Build Cloud plans, which add 200 minutes per seat per month, starting at US$5 a seat per month, and additional minutes beyond those start at US$0.05/minute.
